Cities renew themselves on different time scales. Buildings can be short lived, but streets and squares can last for centuries. In old European cities there are streets that people have walked along for 2000 years. These are the Cities of Memory, the physical counterparts of written history. But in the 20th century a new urban vision was born. Planners and architects began to make plans for future cities based on functional criteria – the Cities of Prophecy.
